A chemosensor is a molecular receptor that receives a stimulus and responds to the transition by induced signal changes (change in absorption or emission wavelength after recognition of the targeted species).

Chemosensor is thus defined as a sensory receptor that transduces a chemical signal into an optical signal which is indicative of the presence of an analyte. It comprises of two parts: (1) Binding Part, (2) Signaling Unit

Key factors for a good chemosensor:

High molar absorptivity: Strong light absorbing property

High fluorescence quantum yield: Strong emissive property

Large Stokes Shift: Change in wavelength during interaction

Optimal excitation wavelength: within the detectable range

Optimal emission wavelength: within the the visible range (400–750) nm

Fluorescence lifetime: Longer lifetimes are usually associated with higher quantum yield

High-photostability: helps in developing selective chemoreceptors
